Iniesta laments missed opportunity

Andres Iniesta has lamented Barcelona’s failure to close the gap on Real Madrid in La Liga following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad.

La Blaugrana handed the title initiative back to the capital giants courtesy of their inability to cancel out Jordi Alba’s early own goal in San Sebastian, but while the Spain international acknowledged the disappointment, he was confident in his side’s ability to bounce back.

“We had chances to score but were unable to take advantage of them,” he said after the game.

The team played well, with good speed, but we lacked the goal. It’s a shame because it was a chance to trim the deficit.

“We have the desire to do things well. We’ll analyse this defeat then prepare for the Copa and Champions League with as much enthusiasm as possible.”
